UNIQUE IN FRANCE 1 WATER MILL AND WINDMILL MEETING
average rating of 3.0 based on 2 reviews

Quirky, unique property but only suitable for a few holidaymakers.

  • 3 of 5

Lovely unique property consisting of a water mill and a windmill connected by a low building housing the kitchen , bathroom and utility.

However, there are some drawbacks. The stairs in both the windmill and water mill are so steep that you can only walk backwards down them. Not suitable for the elderly, infirm or for small children.

Our first night was spent in the windmill. This has 3 floors with the first having 2 children’s ‘beds’ which were just mattresses on the floor. The top floor has s low bed with a very thin mattress. If you like your bed very firm, then fine. We abandoned the windmill after the first night for the more comfortable bed located on a mezzanine in the water mill. Also, the en suite in the windmill, the shower was held up with a coat hook.

So a more comfortable nights sleep was had in the water mill but you do have the noise of the water going through the chase under the house (where the water wheel used to be). Also, sleeping here means no bathroom and the toilet is accessed by going through the kitchen, stepping outside, walking along a covered walkway to the bathroom door.

Unfortunately the weather wasn’t too good for the first part of the holiday. We tried to work the radiators but failed. We had been told that they were worked with a switch but couldn’t see how. Eventually we lit a fire.

There are nice grounds to the property and we were told that the pool would be cleaned during the week. It wasn’t. Unfortunately it had a dead mouse and frog in it. Also there is a stream running through the garden which maybe a worry with small children.

This is a typical rural GITE but please be aware that it does have its drawbacks.
